13 These all died †in faith, tnot having received the promises, but uhaving seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and vembraced them, and wconfessed that they were xstrangers and ypilgrims on the earth. 14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire za better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore zzGod is not ashamed ato be called their God: for he hath bprepared for them ca city.
